Mr. Media® Radio

No greater authority than Marvel Comics? own Stan Lee asks that you not read Barbara Slate?s new book, You Can Do a Graphic Novel.

It?s right there on the cover: Stan the Man says, ?I shudder at the thought of having to compete with a whole new gaggle of graphic novel creators! I tremble because if anyone can bring out the writer and artist hidden within society?s somnambulant psyche, it?s the titanically talented Barbara Slate. So please don?t read this book. I have a family to support!?


I hate to counter the expresses wishes of the man who put the ?excel? in ?Excelsior!? but if you?ve ever thought about dabbling in the world of graphic novels and need a little help getting started, Barbara Slate may be the right hot poker for you.

Slate is a veteran of comic books and illustration, having started her career with a line of ?Ms. Liz? greeting cards and Cosmopolitan cartoons before graduating to comic books. She has worked for DC and Marvel, having illustrated everything from Barbie for Marvel, Beauty & the Beast for Disney and Betty & Veronica for Archie Comics. She?s also the author of the Yuppies from Hell series of graphic novels.

Speaking of ?from hell,? she?s a fellow parent of a teen-age daughter. Poor woman!
